# 1, I buy a whole new wardrobe once a year and usually nothing in between unless I find something really cheap

Always #1, never 2, rarely 3

1) People shop for practical reasons, like..."Ops ....I run out of condoms"...."I haven't ate anything for 3 days"....


No wonder you're in such a good mood today! You've been busy!


#1 above is my reason.... well, the not-eating one anyway. Really, i could forget to eat when I'm busy.

I don't enjoy shopping for fun. If I can't afford to buy the things I don't really get any joy from just looking at them, I have more important (or more fun) things to do. Just my opinion of what's fun. So DEFINITELY NOT #2 for me.

Sometimes I do #3. I've noticed it does make me feel good to buy something if I'm feeling down. But I don't buy expensive things or things that are TOO stupid. Maybe I'll buy a book or some DVD's, or even some little kitchen gadget or a cheap piece of jewelry. I'm sometimes tempted to buy bigger things when I'm down, but money's tight so I usually will only spend 20-40kuai if it's useless, or maybe 100kuai or more if it's useful or needed anyway.

My most recent STUPID purchase:
(10rmb)
A little bear from 7-11. It's a horoscope bear, mine is orange. He lights up when your cellphone rings. He's transparent, so you can see his electronic guts, and he has a beijing opera mask face. It's just the WEIRDEST thing, I HAD TO get one!

transparent orange robot bear with opera face and a light in his chest!
OMG, how could you NOT buy that?
Bizarr-o!!


(and his arms and legs move)

Most of the time I am the 1st style as I have to, the necessaries of life won't come to your house by themselves.

Sometimes I will be the 2nd style, it's also nice to have some friends with you when shopping.:)

I have seldom tried the 3rd one,  but it is a good idea to buy some small gift to cheer up.

I only shop when there's a big sale sign on the window. Though I might not need anything but the sale force pulls me right into the store.
